NOTA BENE! Because this is the first time we've streamed/recorded a session, there are some quality issues with this video. The streaming application did not accept the selection of an external microphone, using the onboard MacBook mic instead. Because of this at a couple of points in the video it's difficult to hear Adam over the sound of typing on the recording MacBook, As well, many of his slides are very washed out. You can find those slides here in PDF form. Rest assured we shall continue to improve video quality as we learn more about this process.
